Researchers Huabin Zhao of Wuhan University in China and Jianwen Li at BGI-Shenzhen in China combed through the genomes of Adelie penguins
and emperor penguins and found genes that are known to create salty and sour taste receptor proteins, but none for the other tastes.
I also started looking through lots of nature documentaries about Adelie penguins
, as my approach was that everything the penguin did would be based on behaviour from the wild (almost).
are one of the smallest and most widely found penguins in the Antarctic.

We investigated the paternity of 39 Adelie penguins

Monty's Christmas is the seventh John Lewis advert directed by Dougal Wilson and features CGI technology to ensure Monty and Mabel look and behave exactly like real Adelie penguins
The artists pored over hours of footage of Adelie penguins
to recreate his waddle, dive and even the way his eyes open.
By using high-resolution satellite imagery, Stony Brook University ecologist Heather Lynch, PhD, and conservation biologist Michelle LaRue, PhD, of the University of Minnesota, have applied a new method that permits regular monitoring of Adelie penguins
across their entire breeding range, and by extension the health of the Southern Ocean ecosystem.
A new kind of bird flu has been detected for the first time in Adelie penguins
in Antarctica, though the virus does not seem to make them sick, Daily Nation reported referring to the researchers.
Meanwhile, at Ross Island in Antarctica, Adelie penguins
are struggling to feed themselves as melting sea ice breaks away into giant icebergs.
For 13 years, researchers collected data on the foraging ability of chick-rearing Adelie penguins
on Ross Island, Antarctica.
